At the gurdwara langar, Ankush started doing seva and came close to the Sikh baba who looked after the place. "In six months, I learnt all my work. In 2013, another baba, Major Singh from a Ludhiana-based gurdwara, came and saw me working."
Impressed by his work, the baba took him to Ludhiana. "I changed my name to Gurubaj Singh and became a Sikh," he said. Ankush used to transport wheat donated by people back to the gurdwara. The baba taught him driving and also helped him get a licence.
But on July 21 night, he had a fight with a fellow worker. "I was reminded of Santosh with whom I always used to fight. I looked him up on FB and found him. I messaged my number and he called," he said. The brothers talked for two hours.
"The baba booked my ticket for Jhelum Express and I reached Pune station on July 28," Ankush said. Hemlata said the family had stopped looking for him two years after he left home. "But I always knew he was safe," she said. Ankush now plans to settle in Pune. "My brother has a stationery shop. I will join him. I won't convert back to my religion. "
